About the Marvin J. Malecha Scholarship

To honor the legacy of former Dean Marvin J. Malecha, FAIA, world-renowned architect, educator, former president of the American Institute of Architects, the College of Environmental Design is working to establish the Marvin J. Malecha Scholarship.

Malecha served as the Dean of Environmental Design at Cal Poly Pomona from 1982-1994. He was the architect of a number of the building projects on the CPP campus, among them the W. Keith & Janet Kellogg Gallery and the Interim Design Center (IDC). During his tenure, the Lyle Center for Regenerative Studies was established, and the Neutra VDL Studio and Residences was donated to Cal Poly Pomona.  

As an educator and a leader, Dean Malecha was known for promoting gender parity in both the faculty and student body. This scholarship honoring his legacy is intended to support the University’s commitment to diversity and inclusion and to make higher education more accessible to all.  

The goal for this endowed scholarship is $100,000. In the event the amount raised is less than $50,000 by June 2024, the funding will not be endowed and instead will be kept in a spendable account for supporting an annual scholarship until the funding is exhausted.

How your donation helps

Your generosity will help honor Dean Malecha's vision of making education accessible to students that represent the diversity, ingenuity and promise of the next generation of designers. 

Dean Malecha's scholarship is one of many endeavors the College of Environmental Design has embarked upon to honor its long-standing commitment to educate and train future design professionals by helping them realize their higher education goals. There are many ways to support this mission at the college and department levels. Other giving opportunities include scholarships and critical funding areas in the departments of Architecture, Art, Landscape Architecture, and Urban and Regional Planning.
